Susan's review

Comfortable and relaxing yet close to everything you need. Kind and thoughtful owners who make you feel very welcome and for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Coming soon for 2022

When La Tannerie was open as a functioning tannery, the large barn opertated as the main workshop. It was a hive of activity where as many as 60 workers were employed to make state of the art leather buttons.

The smaller barn ‘Le petit atelier‘ is currently being renovated into a modern one bedroom gîte, with a grand master bedroom. 

The larger barn ‘L’atelier du Bouton’ once renovated will sleep up to four guests in two bedrooms.

From 2022 La Tannerie will sleep up to 16 guests.

Unique town centre location

La Tannerie is perfectly located a 5 minute walk from the quaint village of Chalais a typical French town with a hive of activity, ample bars, shops and restaurants.

There is an award-winning Monday market every week where you can sample local produce and people watch with a croissant and coffee.

Overlooking the town is the imposing and beautiful 16th century Chateau de Chalais. With it’s surrounding moat and excellent restaurant it’s definitely worth a visit.

There is a busy train station in the heart of Chalais with local routes to Bordeaux and Angouleme, both with onward connections via TGV.
